VANCOUVER - After making a big splash on Day 1 of free agency by signing Ryan Miller, the Vancouver Canucks took some time to gain some organizational depth with three smaller deals.

The Canucks signed centres Dustin Jeffrey and Cal O'Reilly and defenceman Bobby Sanguinetti but did not announce the term of any of those contracts.

Jeffrey most recently played 24 games with the Dallas Stars after 100 with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He has 17 goals and 14 assists in his NHL career.

O'Reilly spent the 2013-14 season with Vancouver's AHL affiliate, the Utica Comets, after playing a year in the KHL. In 113 games with the Nashville Predators, Arizona Coyotes and Penguins, he has 13 goals and 28 assists.

Sanguinetti, a first-round pick at 21st overall in 2006, is perhaps best known for being drafted just ahead of Claude Giroux. The big defenceman played only five games for the New York Rangers and has spent the bulk of his career with the Carolina Hurricanes.

Sanguinetti spent last season in the KHL.
